Novotel hotels overview

Novotel Hotels London

Like all luxury hotels in London, rates fluctuate quite dramatically, sometimes even day by day for the same room. As a broad guide if the hotel is in a business orientated area of London, room rates will be cheaper at the weekend, leisure oriented districts will be cheaper mid-week.

Novotel hotels in London are large (typically around 200 bedroom), modern purpose-built hotels. The Novotel hotels in London tend to be in locations convenient for business, rather than leisure districts like the West End theatre district. Nevertheless, Novotel can offer very good value and these hotels are especially good for family weekend breaks. As the Novotels in London are biased towards business, they have rooms to fill at the weekend. Children can often stay free and receive free breakfasts.

The Novotel London West in Hammersmith is very convenient if you are using Heathrow Airport, with direct trains every 5 minutes. If you want a full-service hotel and have one eye on your wallet, this may be the hotel for you. The Novotel Tower Bridge and the Novotel Waterloo are in very good central locations and with family rooms and cheaper weekend room rates make a good family weekend break choice.

The Pullman St Pancras was upgraded from a Novotel to the Pullman brand in 2012. The Pullman is yards from St Pancras Station, terminus of the Eurostar train to Europe and is next door to the British Library. The Sofitel St James hotel is a 5 star hotel in a 5 star location at the heart of the West End theatre district, just off Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square.
